    I've found Google Chrome to be **** on TSR. It slows down to a stutter on threads with GIFs or otherwise complicated sigs. Safari is by far the best browser IMO.

    You should swallow your pride and give Safari a go. It might surprise you.

    My preliminary findings are to the contrary, I'm afraid.

    Chrome is the fastest, but I still prefer Firefox because of its superior add ons.

    I literally don't know anyone who still uses IE. Even people who know jack about computers and browsers have downloaded alternatives.
    Pretty much this. My girlfriend still uses IE though and claims any other browser is far too confusing.

    Switch to Chrome, it's much faster than Firefox
    But are the add-ons as good? I'd be lost without them now.

    I use the spell checking add-ons and translation add-ons most. The rest I could probably live without, I admit. ^^'

    I am currently using Firefox, but thinking about using Chrome... hmm, might give it a whirl...

    I used to use IE all the time, until about two years ago when, on a whim, decided to download Firefox and haven't looked back since... can't bear to use IE now.

    I didnt think anyone still uses I.E :confused:

    Google chrome all the way!!! :woo:
    My dad uses opera and my sis uses firefox, i hate them both!

    Firefox is actually quite good up until the point it starts to crash your computer. Opera is just alien.

    Sometimes I HAVE to use I.E just to download software for my Blackberry. It's bloody annoying. It's small things like this that make you think the Illuminati exist after all.
